Details for: Dabbahu
The slopes of Dabbahu volcano in the background are part of a large volcanic massif consisting of obsidian flows, lava domes, pumice cones, and basaltic lava flows constructed over a basaltic-to-trachytic shield volcano. This view from the north with people for scale shows Da'Ure, a 500-m-long fissure vent formed during Dabbahu's first historical eruption in September 2005. A small pumice dome was formed during the eruption. The central part of the Dabbahu massif lies farther to the right off the margin of the photo.
